Strategic new alliances and development of new contacts to be seen at this year’s edition of Arab Oil and Gas 2015

The 19th Arab Oil and Gas Show (OGS) – the International Trade Exhibition for Onshore and Offshore Oil, Gas and Petrochemical Industries serving the Middle East and beyond, will offer a platform to discuss favourable prospects in the region’s energy sector, forge new partnerships, foster relationship with existing clients, and throw the spotlight on new products in downstream technology to maximise investment opportunities in refining, storage and distribution of Oil and Gas.

Held under the patronage of the Supreme Council of Energy, the show takes place alongside WETEX, organized by Dubai Water and Electricity Authority (DEWA), the region’s leading event focused on Water, Energy, Technology and Environment, from April 21 to 23, 2015 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre. WETEX and OGS 2015 are organised under the theme ‘Synergy in Energy, at the Forefront of Sustainability.’ Together, the exhibitions will debate on the challenges of energy conservation for the UAE’s sustainable development.

“In line with the directives of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai, to promote Dubai’s as a global hub for trade, finance, tourism, green economy and sustainability, DEWA organises WETEX as a yearly major platform to serve vital sectors in Water, Energy, Technology and Environment. The Arab Oil and Gas Show is an intrinsic part of our focus on the energy sector, as the exhibition also focuses and promotes innovative solutions and technologies. Over the past 16 exhibitions, it has made a significant contribution to the development of the water, environment, oil and gas, and conventional and renewable energy sectors. It has also succeeded in supporting the national economy significantly through agreements and deals signed during the exhibition,” said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), President and Founder of WETEX.

The region’s dedicated Energy events will offer exhibitors a favourable business environment where they can have access to a more focused profile of trade buyers and industry specialists from around the region. In addition, it will empower exhibiting companies to generate higher quality leads that benefit their investment in this region, for years to come.

Anselm Godinho, Managing Director, International Conferences and Exhibitions (IC&E), organizer of OGS, said: “OGS is a networking and business-to-business event where current and potential international hydrocarbon operators and industry professionals will get an opportunity to meet key government executives and decision makers from the Arab World. It will facilitate discussion on new developments in the region’s oil and gas industry, including operational and market challenges, new opportunities and technological advancement in the hydrocarbon sector.”

OGS 2014 was a highly successful event which registered a footfall of over 8,000 industry visitors over three days and generated mass exposure through both regional and international media. From the total visitor turnout, nearly 46 per cent either placed an order with the exhibiting companies or planned to do business with them. For more information, please log on to:
